The Shallow Sea

                                                                                                                                                                      Half Moon Cay, or, San Salvador, was the second destination on our tour of the Bahamas.  At 9:00 AM, the announcement was made that you could begin disembarking for the island.  At nine o’clock, I was in the Coconut Lounge eating breakfast and looking out on the turquoise waters.  We agreed the day before…

GIVE-A-WAY: New Music From…?

Last month we gave away a book, now it’s March and time for a new prize…how about some new music?  While I was in Marion, IL for the Truthseeker’s Homecoming, Brian Free and Assurance had their new project, Unashamed with them.  This is their brand new release with ten original songs!  Unashamed is also the…

CD Review: Love Loud – The Browns

When I first listened to the Brown’s Love Loud project I was impressed with the quality of music and lyrics.  After glancing at the insert and seeing that five of the songs were co-written by at least one member of the Browns…I was impressed again.   Their ability to pen this many songs that say something…

Your Walk Talks Blog Tour – stop #3

I can still remember the first time I sat in an auditorium and watched Mark Trammell sing.  It was back in the mid 2000’s before the “Mark Trammell Trio” morphed into the Mark Trammell Quartet.  As usual, it was pouring down rain outside.  (Somehow it always rains during this particular concert that’s an annual event…

January Jitters!

The Celebration Continues…

The night sky glared down through the glass atrium as I rushed through the Delta to get to the Governor’s Ballroom.  Time had slipped away from me at the Opry Mills Mall and now I had to ignore the beauty around me to quickly reach the concert that no doubt had already started.  Yet, the…

“I’ll Try It”

Applause broke out as Legacy Five walked on stage at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee on New Year’s Eve.  “Y’all know these guys?” Scott Fowler asked with a smile and outstretched arms. “Why don’t we start the evening with prayer,” bowing his head, Scott went on to acknowledge that many will be glad…

Paris, Quartets and Christmas

When I think of going to Paris; images of the Eiffel Tower, beautiful gardens and the Seine River flash through my mind.  The City of Lights.  Instead, the Tennessee hills rolled by my window as we drove into a small town all decorated for Christmas.  I smiled as we passed a mini Eiffel Tower made…

Chapel with the Mark Trammell Quartet

Tuesday morning dawned in Louisville and as the sun rose, so did I, ready to meet the day.  Paging through the program book to the schedule page, I checked the time again on the showcase.  10:30-11:30 AM.  Chapel – Mark Trammell Qt. East Hall A-B.  It was going to be a good morning… With a…

November Give-A-Way

As I look out the dining room window, a bright yellow maple tree reminds me that Fall is in full swing.  I love this time of year and can’t keep the stereo silent.  The beauty outside just beckons me to keep the music playing whether I‘m at home, in the car or outside.  One of…
